About the Artist:
Alexa Vasquez is a writer and artist from Oaxacalifornia. Oaxacalifornia is the only home she can claim. Her artforms are infused with memories of growing up in an immigrant household, leaving Tlalixtac de Cabrera, Oaxaca as a child, and transitioning and surviving trans womanhood in the United States.
